 .. and againg seems You try think only about current workaroud and about
final solution ;>
Maybe other way will be good.
Some feactures can be enabled conditionaly. IMHO this kind hacks can be
enabled in this way for example by --enable-term-hacks on autoconf
level (?). Maybe after separate this tings conditionaly You will see how
many distribution will enable this and how deeper is sense adding this
kind ad choc solution :_>

BTW next thing TODO. Is someone thinking about remove from mc source code
slang library ? Seems current curses support isn't correct and if someone
want use mc with libgpm (which is usualy linked with ncurses or termcap)
as consequence this makes neccessary linking with static mc builtin slang
library and shared ncurses/termcap (for gpm). If someone decide enable gpm
in mc it will be good disable building included slang and choose as term
library this which is now linked with system libgmp or if not print some
warnings about linking with more than one term library.

PS. Using AM_GNU_GETTEXT instead AM_GNOME_GETTEXT problem is still
unresolved and can be still solved by simple
s/AM_GNOME_GETTEXT/AM_GNU_GETTEXT/ without any bad consequences because
all projects excep mc uses AM_GNOME_GETTEXT as simple AM_GNU_GETTEXT
replacemnet without modyfications on automake level. Also final and best
solution is still the same: fix AM_GNU_GETTEXT in gettex and add abilities
for correct make dependences for intl/lintl.a library (if compile incuded
libintl is enabled). Prepare this in this way isn't hiding problems (like
You say). This real solution because AM_GNOME_GETTEXT solves this only for
GNOME specyfic projects.
